Instead of stopping your tile design where the shower ends, use it all the way around your walls to protect surfaces and create the illusion of a bigger space. Get inspired with this glamorously intricate Waterjet Mosaic wallpaper effect tile.

Continue your tile up to the top of the wall by adding a mosaic on top of your wainscot. This softly curved chevron pattern blends perfectly together to create an elegant design.
